JUNE WRAP UP | My Graphicsathon Wrap Up!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! June was a weird month from start to finish. I started the month on a really strong reading high, literally fiinishing my first book by 9am on June 1st and then I was going really well reading on the bus to uni every day. But, then exam week hit me full-force and my reading came to an immediate halt basically until Graphicsathon started. However, I still think I read some great books this month and I absolutely read some new favourites during Graphicsathon which I’m proud of!

Also, even if I hadn’t read a single thing this month, I still co-hosted a readathon which makes me so proud!

So, I’m going into July with a really positive outlook and a lot of motivation, here’s hoping my wrap up is just as positive!

All The Movies & TV Shows I Watched in January – April | 2021 Screen šŸŽ¬šŸ‘€

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m posting a quick summary for the first four months of the year and showing you everythign I watched in those four months! I used to do these back in 2019 but didn’t continue them into 2020 because I was a bit too overwhelmed. But, I had a spare moment today so I figured why not! I hope you all enjoy this and maybe find a new movie to watch!

Let me know in the comments what you’ve been watching lately!

JANUARY WRAP UP ā‡€ I read 44 books in 31 days! šŸ’•šŸ“ššŸ™ˆ

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming to you with my (rather long) January wrap up! I’ve decided that this year I want to do my wrap ups differently and that they’ll be spread across 3 different blog posts… is that too excessive?

I’ll still have my usual cohesive wrap up, which is what you’re reading now, where I’ll review everything I read and everything I watched (which this month wasn’t much). And then I’ll have a monthly blog post reviewing the books and movies for my monthly challenge I’m doing with Rebecca. On top of that, I’m also going to start doing a monthly wrap up featuring my reading statistics for the month. This will feature graphs from my StoryGraph profile as well as from my reading spread sheets over on Notion. So, I hope you will all find them interesting since I’ve really enjoyed thinking abou them and diving deeper into my reading this month!

As for my quick summary of how January went for me, it was realllly long! I did a ridiculous amount of reading, far surpassing a book a day and often reading 2 or 3 per day. I also participated in the third round of the Graphicsathon so I got 7 graphics read during the mini-round! I started back at work, ran a readathon, house sat for some family friends and got super stuck into the Fast and Furious franchise. All in all, I’d say it was a success!

NOVEMBER WRAP UP // comfort movies and not a whole lot of free time

So… November. I had such high hopes but then I ended up working 3 jobs all at once and life sort of overtook my hobbies and so I went from reading everyday in the first few days on the month to sperativally reading a few pages in my lunch breaks and effectlively falling inato a reading slump. So disappointing but the school year ends ina few days so I’ll go back to only having one job which will be a huge relief and will give me some more free time!

On the other hand, this month I also made plans to watch a movie every day which was a bit difficult with me working 8-5 for a lot of the month but I somehow managed to do it, with a lot of short films and catching up with full-length feature films on the weekend.

AUGUST WRAP UP // Reading Old and New Favourites!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my August wrap up! This month started off really strong and I read some new favourites that I absolutely loved but I also had a fair bit of assessment towards the end of the month so my reading and watching really tapered off towards the backend of the month.

Overall, August was a good month, if not a little bit stessful towards the end, so now I’m really excited to see what I read or watch in September!

Also, for anyone curious, I host the GraphicsAThon with Destiny and round 2 will be taking place October 11-19th so you can look forward to an announcement for that soon!

JULY WRAP UP // Going Back to Uni & Slowing Down šŸ“ššŸ„±šŸŽ¬

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog!

Ooh wow, what to say? It’s been a very long month for me, full of uni work and not much else! I didn’t read much this month and I didn’t watch a lot either! So, you’d think I would’ve been blogging like crazy but sadly I barely posted anything at all, it seems all of my creative energy went out the window in July. I am starting to get my mojo back now though, so I have hope for August and I have officially started planning round 2 of the readathon that I co-host with Destiny! The official dates are October 11 – 19th in your time zone! (@GraphicsAthon)

ā†£ If you have any thoughts on what you want to see in a readathon, I’d appreciate your input here!

I’ve had a very up and down month in terms of ratings and whether I actually enjoyed what I was reading but, a plus to that is I found a new favourite 5 star read and I already can’t wait to re-read it in the future!! I also, weirdly read mostly blue-green books this month which was wild because one day, I was literally dressed head to toe in blue, next to a stack of blue books while eating a blue cake that I had made (in fairness, I was reading Percy Jackson at the time) and I think that’s honestly very weird but also low-key hilarious. It was unintentional, I swear!

Insomnia Update: I spent the majority of the month going to sleep around 3 in the morning and then waking up a few hours later for class around 8am once Uni started. BUT, thankfully I am now taking Melatonin so I’m starting to get back on track with a sleep schedule and I’m now going to sleep around midnight each night and it’s amazing! I’m still completely exhausted but I do have a lot of sleep to catch up to be fair! šŸ˜‚šŸ’•
